Everyone knows about the Bar Nilo. There are already 175 reviews of it, and counting. My husband and I aren't football fans, we go there for the coffee, which is superb (though we have had just as good elsewhere), and for another typically Neapolitan feature:...More

This lovely Bar is just opposite the equally good but modern, Museum Cafe. Full of old world charm & famous for having some of Maradonna's toenails in a glass bottle! Old fashioned service along with our lovely Aperol Spritz; not expensive.

Must place visit for those football fans looking to see out the shrine. You’ll pay 5 euros for two beers and be able to sit outside watching the world go by in a little alley. Great little cafe/bar.

Even if you're not into football, stop by Nilo and have a beer or a coffee to get an insight into the real Naples. Remember to buy something if you want to take a picture of the Maradonna shrine, it's only polite. This bar gives...More

The bar is famous for some kind of chapel/altar devoted to Diego Maradona and his achievements when he played for Napoli SSC (UEFA Cup, Italian Scudetto...). It all makes the bar a really specific place and in a way obligatory to see how people of...More

Argentinian football player, Diego Maradona, is very popular in Napoli and the place where you can see this is Nilo Bar. Behind the counter, in pretty much every corner, you can fin Maradona's memorabilia. It's a small and picturesque café in Napoli. You can just...More
